Abstract
The Scientific Computation (SC) Concentration has recently been added to the Applied Mathematics
and Scientific Computation (AMSC) Program at the University of Maryland, College Park. Although
there is a list of requirements for the SC Concentration which helps guide students through their program,
there is a great deal of flexibility (for good reasons and to the benefit of the students) and there is less
precedence and experience that current and future students can rely upon than there is for students in
the Applied Mathematics (AM) Concentration.
We hope that this document answers some of the general questions students may have about the SC
Concentration. Specifically, any student enrolled in or interested in the AMSC Program and enjoys solv-
ing problems using computation and simulation should read this document to get a student's perspective
on the SC Concentration.
